Eidetic memory

The brain is more powerful than any computer, far better than anything money can buy.

Some people display eidetic imagery, commonly called photographic memory. It is not actually photographic, but it does create automatic detailed and vivo images of vitally everything they have ever seen.

Eidetic memory is an interesting concept within memory research. It is based on the assumption that it's possible to store vast amounts of information by briefly 'scanning' the material.

Eidetic imagery occurs when a person has visual clear enough to be “scanned” or retained for at least 30 seconds. Internal memory images can be “viewed” mentally with the eyes close. In contrast, eidetic images are “projected” out in front of a person.

About 5 percent of school age children have eidetic imagery, but it is extremely rare in adults.
